On Tuesday, June 27, our Founder and Executive Director, Andrea Iaroc, will speak at Feminist Camp Seattle -- a five-day retreat full of workshops and engaging conversations that "dive deeper into topics like Feminism + Technology, Feminist Art, Reproductive Justice, and Feminist Political Action."
This will be the second time Seattle hosts Feminist Camp in coordination with Soapbox Inc. For more info visit:
http://www.feministcamp.com/camplanding/ and http://www.soapboxinc.com/


"This lecture has two key concepts: censorship and visibility. Until very recently it was not socially acceptable to be out as an LGBT or Q person. As such, queer art over the twentieth century has been shaped by, on the one hand—the need to conceal references to queer identity and experiences and, on the other—a desire for visibility: the cultural imperative to create representations of queer identity because none exist."

It takes genuine effort and a capacity to listen to our communities' thoughts and feelings to take action and do what is right. This is a good example of that. #Inclusion #Equity

“Whiteness” in the title of this workshop refers not only to demographics but also to the historical operation of a largely uninterrogated, and thus dominant, mode of perception within medieval studies. Many of us — white as well as POC scholars — need better tools for understanding the implications of “whiteness”: how does it affect professional and scholarly practice, student and faculty experiences, and the privileging or muting of certain voices — whether those of premodern authors or contemporary scholars — within the field? Addressing the whiteness of medieval studies will not only equip us to respond to the external political circumstance but will also improve the field’s internal health, ethics, and self-awareness."

We are pleased to announce that Shiyu Zheng is the winner of the spring 2017 Heliconia Grant!

Shiyu will use her grant to visit the Rubin Museum of Art's extensive Himalayan Art collection and continue her research on portrait thangkas of the sixth Panchen Lama; these portraits epitomized the artistic exchange between Tibet and central China during the Qing dynasty. At CORAI we believe Shiyu's work is imperative to widening the scope of art research and its meaning in contemporary practice. We wish her the best!

It is important to acknowledge the ways in which the arts shape our education and socialization. Throughout history, art and its institutions have acted as markers of social status, an unfortunate fact that progressive societies have worked hard to diminish by making sure the arts are accessible to all regardless of background, disability, socioeconomic status, and location. Let us not regress. We need to fight for Inclusion, Equity, and Altruism for ALL! #NEA #artsandculture #CORAIProject #values
